Trader Joe's Candy Cane Green Tea

I'm normally not a fan of peppermint based teas, but this stuff is amazing!  It tastes exactly like a candy cane, from the light sweet mint topcoat to the smooth feel of vanilla aftertaste.  It's a delicious soothing blend.  And it's decaffeinated, so perfect for an evening of sipping before the fire!

Lazy Saturday

Today was a lazy Saturday.  I stayed in my pajamas all day catching up on movies...and hopefully tonight I will catch up on my sleep!  Off to bed now...  Today's post is short and sweet.

Ugh, so tired today.  I REALLY need a couple days of downtime.  Feeling run down and wiped out, and like I'm fighting something off.  Mornings seem to come way too early these days no matter what.  Work is exhausting; the a/c is blasting even though the temperature has dropped outside.  I feel a constant chill and can't seem the shake the cough I've had.  My head feels swollen and my neck is stiff.  Not the most exciting post today, but it is what it is.  The good news is…  it's Friday!

Zhena's Gypsy Tea- Rooibos Chocolate Chai

 Time for a tea update!  I've discovered a new tea that I really like.  It's made by Zhena's Gypsy Tea and is a Rooibos Chocolate Chai.  For those of you that have been following my blog, you know that I am a tea fiend.  I love tea.  I could drink it all day long, except the caffeine tends to keep me awake if I drink it late in the evening.  And I'm just not a fan of herbals.  So I've been keeping an eye out for some time looking for a suitable substitute for evening sipping.  Zhena's Gypsy Tea Rooibos Chocolate Chai seems to be the trick so far!  I'm normally not a chai fan, or straight rooibos.  But somehow this particular blend is tasty as all get out.  Zhena also makes a Rooibos Caramel Chai that tastes similar- a bit more subtle but also very good.  I think they are both seasonal blends, so try them soon if you get a chance.
